Fantastic!!!

Is it possible to put the original image right below your wonderful render? Love to see coupe and GC side by side.

Awesome render! I still fail to see the point of the 4GC though. I mean, why not just buy a 3 Series if you need 4 doors??! Maybe BMW will give us a 3 Series coupe since they seem to be all over the board with their offerings.

To me in the side shot the GC resembles an A5 Sportback :/

Agreed. I hope that's just the bulky camo creating that similarity, and that the final sheet metal is closer to the 6GC's.

Looks good.

One question though:

When are we going to start calling these renderINGS?

The first thing I thought when I saw it was "it looks like the 3GT". That's not a good thing.

Good job on the rendering

OMG !!! It's like 4M Gran Coupe has been unveiled.

OMG !!! It's like 4M Gran Coupe has been unveiled. Hope BMW will follow up your rendring as close as possible. It could be such cool looking budget friendly performance car for all of us who needs 4 door.

I drove recently 640 GC / 650 GC and 6M GC one after another.. 6M GC just blow my mind.. but 125K sticker put my mind back together

If Bimmer can build 4M GC within 70K range I am first in line for my second ED.

HaroldWood, Thanks for sharing with us bright future

Is anyway possible to see same render in EB and Alpine White?

An M4GC could be interesting. I assume that will depend on how positively the 4GC will be received.

It looks big because it is. It will have the stretched wheelbase of the 3GT.

What I wonder is: if there is no interior upgrade to the regular 3/4 series, can it justify a price tag similar to a 5 series? Or will it be priced much below?

There are nuanced differences between render, rendering, and rendition, and it seems automobile journalists have chosen the most appropriate word to describe a photoshopped picture. I sometimes see artist "rendition" used in the caption and "rendering" used in the copy, so it's still slippery. That's probably why some people are confused. "Render" is not correct though.
